The Power of Positive Attitude: Glenwood “Bubba” Cobb
The MTC Medical division provides medical services at many of the facilities we operate. The medical team at each site is led by a Health Services Administrator or HSA.
All of us throughout MTC want to take a moment to salute each one of our HSAs, knowing they represent the determination and fortitude of every member of their team at each facility where MTC Medical has a presence.
In this story, we pay tribute to Glenwood “Bubba” Cobb, the HSA at the Bay Correctional Facility in Panama City, FL. Jesse Williams is the warden.
Glenwood: I just love the environment. Everybody’s on the same team, they’re more of a family. Ya’ll have a common goal, so to speak.
Warden Williams: He’s somebody that comes to work every day with the right attitude, the right level of enthusiasm, the right level of energy. And each day he gives his all. He wants to see our Medical Department be better tomorrow than what they were yesterday, and I appreciate that from him. One thing I like about him is he’s not afraid to make a mistake. If he makes one, he understands it, and he corrects it.
Glenwood: When I see that we haven’t done our job, I always make sure that we do our job. It always pays to treat everybody with respect.
Warden Williams: Non-medical staff seem to have taken a liking to him because of his personality and understanding the business of corrections.
Glenwood: I’ve got great people here, I walked into having a really good nursing staff, good Director of Nurses (DON). I’ve got a really good strong mental health team. And my dental staff is awesome, they often are helping other people When they’re slow and nurses are a little bit behind, they’ll help get inmates in, kind of direct the flow. They help with the reports that our DON does. I mean, everybody works as a team. It’s really a nice family atmosphere here.
Warden Williams: Those folks do an outstanding job, and it’s just a blessing to have them. And I’m honored to be able to work with those correctional professionals in the medical field each and every day.
